Your Baker Preferred to Remain Private

Not all our bakers have signed up to “Who’s Your Baker?” programme due to social stigma or bad experience of being identified as someone with disability.

Many of our bakers have invisible disability such as cognitive or mental health. They have been discriminated in the past due to their invisible disabilities even when they have the required qualifications for the jobs.

It goes to show that we have a lot of work to do in New Zealand, that we must learn to accept and enjoy each other’s differences, and use that to connect us than to separate us.

What can you do to help breakdown social stigma?

  1. Know the facts. Educate yourself and challenge your old beliefs.
  2. Be aware of your attitudes and behaviour.
  3. Choose your words carefully.
  4. Educate others.
  5. Focus on the positive.
  6. Support people.
  7. Include everyone.
